As some of you know I got the bahhgeeezzzaas scared outta me yesterday. I answered another phone call from the guys who wanted to warn me that someone in China was using my Email. I knew that was a lie but I egged this bozo on to get more information. He told me to type in EV in the settings search box and check the list under Adminstrator. I did. Of course when I saw all those red dots with exclamation points in them I freaked. The guy offered to take mobile control of my system to help get rid of the virus ..... uhhh, no, not gonna happen, not only was he hard to understand but now I knew he was up to no good. So I went to my Email and found the Microsoft folder with their phone # and called them. At least I knew who was on the other end of the line this time and I spoke to an Tech. With his help I learned that what those events were had nothing to do with there being any kind of problem, this was simply a log to let me know a threat had been remedied. Boy was I relieved. And I felt kinda stupid too. I use Windows Defender as my security system which is free and it has done a good job protecting my PC. Do you have a security app on your PC? Have you had any problems with viruses? The photo above was taken the other day when Ally and I were playing water sports, we had a blast. She is so funny.

Thank you, I hope I get some more today, it'll be 100 before the days out. Yes, I really did call Microsoft, as long as I am the one calling I will always know who is on the other end of the line as they always identify themselves as Microsoft when they answer. Would you like their number?

OMG!!! Now that would have scared the daylights out of me too! We have caller ID and never pick up if a number is not recognized by either one of us. I do have a security app on my PC, thanks to my husband. Ally is having a ball in that photo!!!
